Not too much is new in Linux world. Still mostly working on SPOJ problems and browsing the internet. So nothing all that exciting yet.
However, I did manage to learn how to use the
mount command. The general format is
mount [source] [destination]
Here is an example: mount /dev/sda1 /media/disk The colors are so that you can easily follow which is the destination and which is the source. I probably should mention at this time that I am running Ubuntu from an external HD (otherwise I run Vista) so if I ever want to access any of the files on my internal HD I must first mount it.
Well that wasn’t too hard. Though if you don’t want to bother with this Ubuntu does have a graphical way to do this. Just go to Places and the drive you want to mount should be in the drop down list. Personally I never knew the source of my internal HD until I ran
df -h. This displaces the space used by each available disk (internal, external, etc.). The
-h flag tells the system to display the information in amounts humans can more easily understand (kB, MB, GB, and so on).
